You know I promised to blog at least once a week when I started this venture! I thought to myself, how hard could it possibly be to add this to my oh so quiet and simple life of 3 small children, fabric design, pattern writing, quilt teaching, husband care, house maintaining, garden weeding and several dozen other small and somewhat menial tasks? What was I thinking?
But every week that goes by and I haven’t blogged, I feel you waiting and waiting and checking and checking to see if maybe….. Waiting patiently I know, some of you have emailed me to see if maybe I had dropped off the face of the earth. Thanks for checking in!
So all of the above is by way of an exlanation to hopefully show you that I’m not a total slacker, but in serious need of some HELP! Anyone out there volunteering? LOL
I would like you all to know that the floor still looks like this 3 1/2 weeks later, although now it has officially made it to the top of my list of things to do… probably at 2:00 am tonite! Anyone else planning on being up then?
Now, I need to preface these pictures by telling you that I love to be a neat person. I love order. I love to have my stash seperated by color and print. I love to see everything in its alotted place…
Having said that, I work best in total chaos. I like to pull things out… fabrics, books, inspiration pieces, magazine tear sheets, etc. I surround myself with everything I need to create and then the juices start flowing.
The problem doesn’t lie there. It lies in the fact that after I am done, I would like for it all to magically put itself away just so that I can do it all again the next week!! Well, the magic didn’t happen this time. Did someone borrow my elves?
So as I promised you can see my creative chaos as my husband lovingly refers to it. [My husband Eric by the way was featured on a recent post at Quilters Buzz, wearing one of my little creations– our free apron pattern giveaway from Market. Let’s just say that when they took that picture, he never thought it would be broadcast on the web. Way to advertise for Fig Tree!] Thanks for the advertiing Gina, we’ll be sure to reciprocate when you least expect it!
Tomorrow’s post: a bit more from Market!
